Massive Blow For Ireland As Two More Players Ruled Out Of Scotland Game

Injury woe.

Ireland will be without the services of both Garry Ringrose and Devin Toner for this weekend’s Six Nations Round 2 clash with Scotland at Murrayfield, adding to the loss of CJ Stander.

Lock Toner was forced off towards the end of the loss to England with an ankle problem, while centre Ringrose has been suffering with some hamstring tightness.

Update: @Ringrose_G & @DevinToner4 have been ruled out for the game against Scotland.@KEITHEARLS87 trained today.

Quinn Roux and Ultan Dillane will battle it out to replace Toner, with Munster’s Billy Holland already drafted in as cover. Ringrose’s absence means Robbie Henshaw could move back into the centre, with Rob Kearney perhaps brought back in.

Schmidt could also stick with Henshaw at fifteen and look to bring in Chris Farrell or even Will Addison. We’ll find out on Thursday. In some good news, Keith Earls trained today and looks like he’ll be available.
